We go over what Terraform is and why it’s a highly sought-after skillset. We’ll also go over how to set up Azure CloudShell so we can diveright into developing with Terraform in Azure straight away.
Learn the fundamentals of Terraform by creating a configuration file and deploying resources into Azure. We’ll also explore the most common ways to authenticate with Azure using the Azure Provider and discuss creating resource dependencies within the Terraform configuration.
Understanding how Terraform state works is a critical component for building Terraform solutions, which is why we’ll be going deep into how the state file keeps track of changes made with Terraform.
Variables allow Terraform modules to take in input making configuration files dynamic. Infrastructure code can be templatized and re-used throughout different environments.
Terraform modules split up infrastructure into small, testable components that make it easy for infrastructure developers to introduce changes in small amounts. Learn how to easily create modules and use them with source control.
HCL is a functional language that allows infrastructure developers to create loops and conditional logic within Terraform code. This allows a high levels of abstraction to be created for deploying infrastructure.
